Swordfish Shredder Oil Lubricant Sachets – Pack of 12 Sachets – Suitable for all Paper Shredders
As with all types of machinery, document shredders will not operate efficiently unless properly maintained. The most effective way to care for a shredder is to oil it regularly.
Oiling is an essential part of shredder maintenance. It helps to maintain maximum performance and is necessary in order to maintain warranty coverage.
Shredding produces a surprising amount of paper dust which builds up inside the cutting assembly. Without frequent oiling, the accumulated detritus compacts, putting a strain on the cutters, motor, gears and bearings. Failing to oil a shredder will inevitably reduce its lifetime.
Shredders should be oiled on a regular basis and before any period of intensive shredding.
Lubrication should always be done when the shredder is cold. Never add oil to a hot shredder. Never use oil from an aerosol as the propellant may be flammable. Always use oil designed for use in shredders.
Swordfish Oil Lubricant is also available in 240ml bottles (search: Swordfish 40069) and 350ml bottles (search: Swordfish 40240)
These 'clean and easy' shredder lubrication sachets from Swordfish are suitable for use with all brands of paper shredders and should be fed into the machine just like any other document. The special oil inside the sachets will evenly lubricate the cutting heads. Using the sachets once a month will ensure your shredder maintains a clean cut and help prevent paper clogging.
